    Found "manly" Quilt Pattern for son's black and white quilt

    There was a recent post where someone was looking for ideas to make a quilt for a man. I added that I, too, was looking for a somewhat simple "manly" quilt as my son wants a quilt made of black prints (with whit on the fabric) and a little bit of white prints (with black on the fabric). Well, today I found a perfect pattern. It is called "Radio Way" by Jaybird Quilts. It should work perfect for my blacks and then frame the blocks with the white print fabric. I am anxious to work on it.

    Would love to see a pic of the pattern or a link to it? Sounds like it's going to be very "handsome"!!

    Looks like a rail fence married to "Warm Wishes". Not a bad choice at all.

    Very nice pattern, I can see it done in black and white prints with red for the framing on the squares.

    A simple manly pattern is a dimensional bow tie out of 5 inch squares. They go together quickly and can be arranged in various patterns. I recently made blocks from a flannel precut 5 inch pieces that look like wool but are flannel. I bought a dark flannel from the same fabric lines for the setting strips and backing. It is very warm and manly looking but easy and looks impressive.

    I have made a rail fence quilt in blacks and white with red sashings and it looked very dramatic.

    I must have the only guys in the world who won't use a "busy" patterned quilt.

    I like the pattern and looks like it could be made as QAUG which I want to do for my first quilt. Do not have room to do a top and hand quilt or quilt on machine.
